There are calls for calm from around the studio as the camera focuses on the main presenter, who then throws to an advert break, and it has since emerged that Orduz sustained no injuries from the accident.
In fact, he was quick to take to Twitter to post a video of himself to his 12.5k followers in which he does not appear to have even gained a scratch.
This is despite the cries of shock from around the studio at the heavy piece of metal hitting him, while millions watched on from home.
